This presentation shows how to easily go from user stories to automated integration tests that themselves read like user stories. You can accomplish this by using custom domain-specific languages (DSL).
A detailed guide to creating a mature and paralellizable automated software testing suite. This talk will cover things such as data independence, atomic tests, state generation, testing oriented pages. It includes sample code, demos and funny cat memes.
Are you doing enough mobile testing? Most don’t, find out how you compare to other development and testing teams. XBOSoft surveyed global software development and software testing teams to understand mobile testing best practices. Use the results from their report to benchmark your own efforts. Below is an article based on the part of the report that covers what types of testing organizations do.
What main factors contribute to success in test automation? What common factors most often lead to the failure of an automation effort? There are no simple universal answers to these questions, but some common elements exist. We believe that two of the most important elements are management issues and the testware architecture:
Easy Coverage is an open source framework that can dynamically generate Java unit tests to perform basic verifications. Easy Coverage is extensible and highly configurable. It can work as a standalone product or it can be used with JUnit. In his blog post, Romain Delamare explains how to dynamically generate Java unit tests with Easy Coverage.
Many people make mistakes in test automation based on good intentions but flawed knowledge. This video presents four intelligent software testing automation mistakes: Automation should find bugs, Test tools are tools for testers, Automate manual tests and Automation has to achieve ROI.
This presentation discusses software testing automation after the fact – or adding Selenium to an existing application. With an existing application, the first step to “doin’ it rite” is to stop doing it so wrong. This talk explains where the bodies are buried when taking an existing Rails application and adding front-end testing after the fact, well after the fact (like a couple of years). What approaches worked, what hasn’t worked and why. Keywords: Cucumber, Jasmine, Rails, Sadness.
This article from David Sale provides a short introduction to Behavior-Driven Development in Python. The article presents the principles of Behavior Driven Development and present the syntax of the Gherkin language that can be used with the freshen Python package, a clone of the famous Cucumber BDD framework written for Ruby. Freshen is an open source acceptance testing framework for Python that uses (mostly) the same syntax as Cucumber. A small step by step example is provided on how to use freshen and alternative tools are proposed.
You might want to begin by choosing the tool you want to use when you want to introduce ATDD to a project or client. In this article, Markus Gaertner says that this doesn’t work and shares his advice on how to overcome the biggest mistakes from the beginning when you get started with ATDD. He recommends to start with an example. Working together, the team identifies a case that would derive the greatest benefit from being automated. You should define the right approach first, the right people second, the right …
Current automated software testing (AST) tools and solutions are still riddled with numerous challenges. This article by Elfriede Dustin discusses the challenges involved in developing a custom automated software testing (AST) framework and provides some tips on how to address such challenges. It summarizes the author’s experience as part of the team that developed the Automated Test and Re-Test (ATRT) tool, now in use throughout Navy programs. Within this article you’ll find automated testing hints that can be useful nuggets as part of any automated testing effort.
